We rarely talk about utopia anymore. Most future scenarios today are determined by a sense of disaster and the dystopic outcome of environmental catastrophe, overpopulation as well as economic and social exploitation. Utopia seems perhaps too unrealistic. Still attached to the phenomenon lingers a reminder of how ideas of better societies in many instances turned into totalitarian regimes.

However throughout history the utopia has been an important tool in reimagine future scenarios. It has created a free space where we can play with different social structures that challenges existing norms and presumptions. For this reason utopias have also been important in creating a space from where voices of the less powerful have been able to safely reimagine their position in society.

"Utopian then becomes a refuge or shelter wherein we may safely envision a changed society. And although mere metaphor located in no real place, utopia nonetheless has power - utopian ideals and ideas change minds: changed minds then change worlds."

Carol Farley Kessler Daring to Dream: Utopian Fiction by United States Women Before 1950, 1995.

We have seen visualisations of a possible future in feminist literature dating back to the 17th century where writers such as Margaret Cavendish imagined women in positions of power to Muslim feminist Begum Rokeya whose work in the early 20th Century drew on Science Fiction in order to reimagine a society based on equality. The utopian idea can also be found in Afrofuturism. Often regarded as a cultural genre, a re-imagining of African traditions that projects techno-futuristic possibilities Afrofuturism as exemplified by Jazz legend Sun Ra envisions both past and possible new futures.

We understand patriarchy as a structure that maintains stereotypes and police certain ideas of gender, race, sexuality etc. Consequently patriarchy is not just a system oppressing women but something that affects everyone.

We take our point of departure in intersectional feminism recognizing that discrimination can be experienced in varying configurations as fx.: racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, xenophobia, classism and more - that they can be interconnected but also recognizing that not everyone has the same experience of discrimination.
